Thought for today:
‘Now I know what happens at a gig, I will be ready for it, next time–I will come in just a T-shirt and shorts and books, and fight my way to the front, like a quietly determined soldier, and then let the band take my head off. I want to walk into rooms like that every night, with a sense of something happening.’
— Caitlin Moran

A friend asked me yesterday, “When will live music be back in the UK?”
Hard to say, but I think small gigs by June – maybe.
How I miss live music – not big mega-gigs, the small venue, lesser-known bands.
Sweaty pub rooms (usually upstairs or downstairs or both).
Paying someone a pittance to entertain you – something we took for granted.
And now those small artists struggle to survive, to let the creative shine, and hear our cheers and applause.
How I long for that shared discovery and mutual admiration.
Yes, I miss my family & friends, and I also miss live music.
Soon to be heard again I hope.
